How does my TA or co-instructor get access to LaunchPad?

For fastest service, please call or write our Sales Support team and provide the following information. For verification purposes, it's best if the instructor of record, not the TA or co-instructor, contacts Sales Support.

  • Institution name
  • If multiple locations, institution campus
  • Instructor of record's name
  • Instructor of record's institution e-mail address
  • TA or co-instructor name
  • TA or co-instructor institution e-mail address, if one exists. If not, a personal e-mail is OK.
  • TA or co-instructor phone number
  • The LaunchPad title that the TA or co-instructor should have access to
  • The instructor of record's LaunchPad course URL that the TA or co-instructor should be enrolled in

 

What will happen after I call?

  • If TAs or co-instructors already have an account, then Sales Support can grant them access to the instructor of record's LaunchPad course immediately.
  • If TAs or co-instructors do not have an account, Sales Support will need 48 hours to create an account, sample them access to the LaunchPad title, and enroll them in the instructor of record's course.
